Update lined up for Xbox One

Update lined up for Xbox One 

Microsoft is updating its gaming console yes again with another update..you might be thinking what now, but with Xbox One they are always looking to improve there game console with new functions which will be initially available to users who have opted into the preview program.

One of the new features include the ability to turn on and off the console through your phone ”yes even before you get thru the front door you can switch on your console” with the use of the Smartglass app via Windows Phone and we believe also Android devices this will be great as you don’t even have to speak Xbox On will become the thing of the past.

Users will have to update Xbox One SmartGlass Beta app from the Windows Phone Store or from Google Play to enable the feature after it rolls out lets hope it come sooner than later.


Personally i love the fact that Xbox are bringing small adjustments to the system small steps like this will truly make the console so much fun to use.

Other significant updates include Miracast support to allow users to cast photos and videos from their Android phones, Windows phones, and Windows PCs to the console, and also to mirror a screen.

Microsoft is planning to add a new feature, Game bar, which will facilitate players to take screenshots of the game and capture clips easily,will this mean less of us using the dvr recorder but if its a new and improved its something i am really looking forward to.

    Another useful and very convenient feature the XboxOne should get in an update is the Task Manager. There isn’t any clear indication of what apps run in the background so really, we have to close apps by guessing. A Windows style Task manager would be great for the XboxOne

    Task manager is not needed. The system only runs two apps simultaneously. And unlike your PC, or your Android device, when you are running an app, when you are running an app [in the background], the system resources necessary to run said app, does not interfere with resources necessary to play games. Background app resources are pre-allocated. And you can only run one of those at a time.

    Long story short, Microsoft has designed the Xbox One with zero need for a task manager – which is why there is not one on the system, and likely will never be one on the system.
